Eureka is a 2000 Japanese film directed and written by Shinji Aoyama. It stars Kōji Yakusho, Aoi Miyazaki, and Masaru Miyazaki.


Eureka is a drama, set mainly in rural Japan, and is mostly shot in sepia tone. It tells the story of a young boy and girl, Naoki Tamura and Kozue Tamura who are on a bus when it is hijacked by a crazed killer. They, along with the bus driver, Makoto Sawai, are the only survivors and flee together. But upon their attempted return to their normal lives, Makoto becomes a suspect in a series of murders and the children become orphaned. These numerous unfortunate events bring the three, along with the orphans' cousin, Akihiko, back together, forming a family and working toward reconciliation from the shared hijacking experience.



Aoyama films largely in widescreen sepia tone and often employs long takes of the Kyūshū landscapes and slow tracking shots with occasional close-ups of the affectless protagonists, recalling Andrei Tarkovsky and Michelangelo Antonioni.


Eureka won the FIPRESCI Prize and Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival<ref...
